A Detroit Veteran Talks of the War and
a I.egaey It Left III in.
When the annual reunion of the
G. A. K. is held. Mithlfrun is always
veil represented. Around the camp
tires of the encampment our boys tell
of the hardships they liavo gone
through and the listener who knows
nothing of war will wonder how they
lived to tell the tale. Few men who
followed old glory and escaped the
hot and fchell returned home without
home legacy is a constant reminder of
their war days. Our representative
found veteran O. V. Neweomb, of De
troit, at his place of residence, No. 237
Second street. Mr. Newcomb told him
how the little conqueror had rendered
him invaluable service. We give his
account here and some words of advice
tersely told. He said:
"A lake covering about two acres in
extent, containing the dead bodies of
20 mules, is not tempting water to
drink, but I was one of many who
drank it, and all of us would have done
so if we had known there was death in
every swallow. This illustrates but
one of the many hardships and priva
tions passed through during the civil
war, and it is no wonder that ti. A. 11.
men suffer from aches and pains. The
most prevalent of these being due to
kidney disorders. I am pleased to note
a great manj' others who passed through
as trying ordeals as I, have now learned
how these troubles can be mitigated.
When I say Doan's Kidney Tills will
cure them I not only speak from experi
ence but from observation. To all old
soldiers or anyone suffering from kid
ney complaint my advice is to try that

drives disease out of the blood. Many medicines suppress
disease cover it but don't cure it. Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla
cures all diseases originating in impure blood by purifying
the blood itself. Foul blood makes a foul body. Make the
blood pure and the body will be sound. Through the blood
Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla cures eczema, tetter, boils, eruptions,
humors, rheumatism, and all scrofulous diseases.
"Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla wiis recommended to me by my
physician as a blood purifier. When I began taking it 1 had
risings or boils all over my body, but one bottle cured me. I
consider Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla the best blood medicine
made." Bonner Craft, Wesson, Miss.

IDDEN away in
the vault of a safe
deposit company 13
a memento of that
struggle of thirty
odd years ago
which no wearer of
the blue or gray
could look upon
without peculiar
emotions. Just now,
when the remnant
of the host that donned the blue nearly
four decades back is preparing to pay
Its yearly tribute to its dead through
out the length and breadth of the
land, this memento a flag so worn
and ragged is of strange interest. Its
history is the history of the war.
This flag flew high in the air over
the battlements of Fort Sumter on that
eventful morning of April 12, 1SC1,
when the newly organized Confederate
forces began the bombardment which
started the greatest conflict of modern
There were two garrison flags in the
fort; one was the fine weather flag and
the other tho stormy weather flag. Like
tho chaos in men's hearts the elements
threatened on that historic day, so the
storm flag was run up and In short time
became the target of the Confederate
Before that it was not a fine flag, be-
Ing made of coarse meshed, strong
bunting, tough enough to withstand the
lashing of the winds of the coast. Ten
feet one way and fifteen th other it
Rtood out like a board and more than
one wild shot, aimed by the inexpe
rienced gunners on shore, went to high
over the fort that big gaps ere torn
In the flutering emblem.
Mrs. Elizabeth Anderson, widow ol
Brevet Major General Andeiaon, com
mander of Fort Sumter, now owns the,
flag, and she treasures it so carefully
that it is rarely removed from tho
strong box in the safe deposit vaults.
The ravages of time have had little
effect upon its color. The red, white
and blve ;t:r alm.t as bright today as
they were thirty-six years ago, and
were it not for the rips and tears it
would make a gallant appearance to
day flying in the bright sunlight.
-ven times during the first day of
the bombardment the flagstaff was
struck, but by a strange series of ac
cidents ir.; i.a.i; continued to fly at the
peak. After one of these accidents Ma
jor Anderson exclaimed: "God Al
mighty nailed that flag to the staff and
I could not lower it if I tried."
This particular accident happened in
this way. Outside tho bar marking
the entrance to the harbor were several
Federal vessels. This fleet could not
enter the harbor without being sunk by
the cannon of the land batteries, and
all it could do was to anchor out of
range and observe the bombardment.
It is needless to say with what anx
iety the men on these ships watched
the flag flying over Sumter. They knew
that sooner or later it must come down,
but they also knew Anderson, and felt
that he would hang on to the last
Every little while Major Anderson
gave orders to dip the flag to the fleet
to show that everything was all right.
During one of these salutes, and when
the flag was being hoisted back into
place after the third dip, a shell burst
near the staff, cutting the halliard. The
flag started to come down with a run,
but a piece of the cut rope got jammed
in a section of the shivered staff and
the flag was mor secure than ever.
It was this that caused Major Ander
son to utter the historic words above
referred to.
After the evacuation of Sumter Ma
jor Anderson Journeyed to New York,
where he made the usual garrison In-

voice to the War Department, includ
ing the famous flag and the fair weath
er flag in the returns. The Secretary
of War promptly ordered the return of
the flags to the major, accompanying
them with a letter in which he said
that they could not be in better keep
ing than in the hands of the man who
bo gallantly defended them.
Major Anderson had the -flags placed
in the vaults of the Metropolitan Rank
In New York, and there they remained
until it was evident that General Sher
man would wring Fort Sumter from the
dying grasp of the Confederacy. The
flag was again sent South, a. on the
day the Confederates surrendered the
fort it was again hoisted to the peak
of the flag pole by Major Anderson
This happened on April 14, 1865, ex
actly four years to the day from the
evacuation. A salute of 100 guns was
fired at the fort In honor of the flag,
and the guns of the surrounding batter
ies and ships Joined in the uproar.
After that the old flag was returned
to the bank vaults, not to be seen again
until death called Its owner. Then It
was used as a pall at the soldier's fun
eral at West Point, and with each sue
ceeding generation its unique historical
value will lncrtasc.

Moat llrmarkable Career.
Ttxlay there is mourning wherever
tho Anglo-Saxon race has found an
abiding place. One of the greatest
lights of modern history has been ex
tinguished and the greatest statesman
England has had in the past century
lias passed through the portal of eter
nity. He is gone, yet, though the mor
tal breath has llown. he will live and
continue to live as long us the Anglo
Saxon race exists, for William Ewart
Gladstone was h great man who found
his way into the hearts of the people,
and there he will ever live. He is to
be reckoned among the few "the im
mortal few not born to die." His has
been an influence so profound that it
cannot end with the stopping of the
heart and the stilling of the tongue.
Whenever the mind reverts to con
temporary England it inevitably thinks
of Gladstone. It sees him in parlia
ment as the greatest debater and po
litical leader In that most powerful
legislative body. It sees him in the
Rritish cabinet mastering the details
of administration in the departments
of finance, or of colonial affairs, or of
the internal relations of the Rritish
nation. It sees him at the head of the
cabinet shaping the policy of the
greatest empire in the world. The
mind's eye cannot look at any phase of
England's life during this half of the
century without beholding this cen
tral, all-pervading figure. And with
all his greatness of achievement, with
all the power over his countrymen
which he. held, he was always the same
unpretending, untitled "Mr. Glad
stone," refusing steadfastly to accept a
peerage, an honor that to a man of his
great character would have been mean
ingless. As plain Mr. Gladstone, the
great Liberal leader and reformer, the
champion of home rule, orator, states
man, scholar and Christian gentleman,
the typical man of his country, he is
destined to hold a higher niche in the
temple of fame than any of his titled
lows, Illlnol anil Wisconsin Suffer From
Terrific Tornado.
Forty-two persons are known to have
lost their lives, and 23 others are re
ported dead, as the result of tornadoes
which devastated portions of eastern
Iowa, western Illinois and north
ern Wisconsin. The storm in
Iowa started near Stanwood and
swept through portions of Cedar, Jones,
Clinton and Jackson counties. Nine
teen persons lost their lives and more
than twice as many were injured. 'The
property loss will probably reach
$.-oo,ooo. In many places not a build
ing of any description was left stand
ing. Cattle, horses and hogs were
killed by the hundreds. In numerous
instances farmers lost everything they
possessed. The Iowa stoim crossed the
Mississippi river into Illinois near Sa
vanna Considerable damage was done
on the Illinois side before this storm
spent its force.
The second tornado in Illinois started
near Stillman Valley and swept north
ward wrecking farm houses and killing
as it went. Rut the greatest loss of
life was at the point of origin. At
Lanark the storm ended by wrecking
the county almshouse and killing three
inmates, and three others were fatally
injured. There were over .j0 persons
in the building when it went down,
and all of them were injured.
In Wisconsin the storm was more
violent than anywhere else, but fortu
nately it originated in the lumbering
districts of the northern counties,
swept along the line of the "Soo" road
and spent its force in the pineries.
Nine people are known to have been
killed. Unconfirmed reports have been
received that 18 lumbermen were killed
in a camp near Ileafford Junction, and
10 more near Elmhurst. The property
damage in Wisconsin, while quite
heavy, is much less than that done in
the fertile farming districts of Iowa
and Illinois.

Tradition says "woman mustsuffcr,,

There is a little truth and a great deal
of exaggeration in this. If a young
woman suffers severely she needs
treatment and her mother should see
that she gets it.
Many mothers hesitate to take their
daughters to a physician for examina

The following letter from Miss Marie

Pinkham helped her;

with irregularity of menses. I was
very weak, and lost so much flesh that
